Poor Mickey van der Hart. The 20-year-old Go Ahead Eagles goalkeeper made one of the worst errors in recent memory to hand title-chasing Ajax a crucial win.
What makes his error even worse was that it came in the 87th minute with the game locked at 1-1. The Eagles are just five points ahead of NAC Breda in the Eredivisie relegation play-off spot, while Ajax are second in the league.
What made his even, even worse, is that Van der Hart is currently on loan at Go Ahead Eagles - from Ajax. Conspiracy theorists had a field day.
Unlike in the Premier League where players are not allowed to play against their parent clubs, no such rule exists in the Eredivisie.
See for yourself below, it's hard to feel anything but sympathy for the young goalkeeper as the ball takes a horrible bounce from the back-pass.
Poor guy.Reuse content
